This Friday 9/1/17, we enjoyed 1 white and 2 reds.
The first was a white, Crios Torrontes, by Susana Balbo (one of Lenny’s favorites) from Argentina. It was a wonderfully aromatic, dry, crisp wine. Amy commented that it was one of the most aromatic wines she has ever had. It was cold and refreshing. At $10 a bottle you can’t go wrong sipping this on the patio on a warm night.
Scott and Amy brought a Pinot Noir from Burgundy, Bouchard Pere & Fils, Bourgogne Reserve, 2014. It was absolutely delightful! If you are not a fan of California Pinot’s, you need to try a Pinot Noir from Burgundy. It is like night and day!
Janet then brought out some BLT’s for a snack, made with some of Lenny’s homemade bacon. The perfect pairing for our next bottle.
The third bottle was a recommendation from our Binny’s wine guy, Tom. He raved about this wine. It was a 2015 Pinotage from Groot Constantia, a legendary winery from South Africa. It was quite impressive. Tom’s description of this wine: “This is the reason we drink wine.” He may be right!
